Written by Luis Amavisca & illustrated by Fernando Gutiérrez
Before we go to sleep, we will not be counting sheep. Let us count imaginary animals. A book that will help little children sleep through imagining different magical creatures. This book has luminescent images that glow in the dark and is written in capital letters to help our early readers.
Luis Amavisca graduated in Musicology and Art History and he also completed a two-year program on the five senses in the Università dell’ Immagine in Milan. He is a plastic artist and he has also worked with photography, video and installations. He has exhibited his work in Málaga, Paris, Basel and Berlin. Some of his pieces belong to the permanent collection of the Málaga Centre for Contemporary Art. His books have been widely reviewed in the Spanish press. He is working on new texts for the SOMOS8 series.
Fernando was born in Oviedo, Spain, and stared to draw from an early age with pencils or with whatever he found. Since then, he has been drawing little animals (except tigers; tigers he never drew because he can’t) and beings from different planets, a bit strange but always friendly. He graduated in Fine Arts from the University Laboral in Gijón, in Madrid and brought Creador de sueños (The Dream Makers) into the world.
